Wait 'til PETA finds out!

Wait 'til PETA finds out!

Well, I’ve got to pack up & leave Gold Beach, OR. I have to say, this has been one of my favorite stops. Just lovely beaches, driftwood… And my hotel has hot tubs overlooking the beach. Mmmmm…

So here’s for your Friday fun:

Seen in Morro Bay, CA

Seen in Morro Bay, CA

Is it Friday already? Where the heck am I? Well, I’m camped out in a little motel in Half Moon Bay, CA. I did get to two beaches today- Aptos, CA (Seacliff) and a little one on the way from there to here.

I’m seeing lots of things that jog old memories… The way drivers will flash their lights to let you know there’s a black & white cop car waiting up ahead. The way we teased Dad about going in circles because we’d passed “Vista Point” several times. The strawberry stands along the road. And the indescribable scent of ocean/eucalyptus.

But I’m still going too fast. You’ll notice in my flickr album. All the beach shots are starting to say “Beach” instead of where. I’ll update the travelogue later.

Here are some links for your Friday:

Way cool! I could be playing music in my car!

You mean… you didn’t read the  EULA?

Ok, these bookstores might be a little better than Bart’s in Ojai.

Gypsy Vardo

A Real Gypsy Vardo- click for more Gypsy info

A friend (Thx, CH!) sent me these lyrics by John Gorka yesterday:

You might like the gypsy life
you judge your progress by the phases of the moon
Get your compass and your sharpest knife
People love you when they know you’re leaving soon.

Which made me start thinking about the process of gypsying and being nomadic (apologies to the Rom.) And how, you can have deep affection for certain places and want to return, even if it’s not to stay.  The return path can be a spiral; you’re returning with a whole new set of experiences, that changes what you see. Hmmm… I’ll need to think further on that.

In the meantime, I’m hanging out w/my Dad & stepmom in Clovis & possibly up @ Shaver Lake, so may not post until Monday. Don’t worry- I’m in good hands 😉

Friday links for you!

Barbie as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

Barbie as the Girl with the Pearl Earring

From the Inspiration Journal:

Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child,
Listen to the DON’TS
Listen to the SHOULDN’TS
The IMPOSSIBLES, the WON’TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me–
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be.

-Shel Silverstein

Friday fun:
